Urban Decay Shattered Face Case

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case ($44.00 for 0.43 oz.) includes five eyeshadows, one lip color, one eyeliner, two blushes, and one highlighter. Each eyeshadow is 0.03 oz., each blush is 0.05 oz., the highlighter is 0.05 oz., Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color is 0.10 oz., and the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is 0.03 oz. There is $54 worth of eyeshadows, $9 worth of blush (Urban Decay doesn’t currently sell powder blushes, so I took the price-per-ounce for the Naked Flush palette, which is the most comparable product I could think of), $19 worth of lip color, and $14 worth of eyeliner. The kit is at least $96 in value (the blush/highlighter could make the value higher if they were actually sold separately).

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder ($29.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “soft, glowing beige powder.” It’s a pale, champagne-beige with warm white sparkle and shimmer. The finish is rather frosted, somewhat metallic. Kevyn Aucoin has a much, much finer shimmer that translates to a more luminous glow. NARS Debbie Harry Highlighter is less sparkly. NARS Albatross is more golden. Chanel Poudre Signee de Chanel is slightly pinker. Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Pink Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez Face/Pink Palette ($46.00 for 0.45 oz.) contains an iridescent powder (0.12 oz.), blush (0.13 oz.), and beauty powder (0.20 oz.). It’s a limited edition palette that releases on September 12th. I can’t remember the last time a full-sized Iridescent powder came out (to my recollection, which is not infallible, there were some in Fafi, which were $21 a pop and contained 0.28 oz., and blushes were $17.50 then, so my guess is these would be around $24), and then blushes are typically $21.00 for 0.21 oz. and beauty powders are typically $24.00 for 0.35 oz. So the palette contains $9.00 worth of iridescent powder, $13.00 worth of blush, and $13.71 worth of beauty powder–a total value of $35.72. You pay for convenience and variety, but if you only used one or two shades, you might consider finding similar products individually.
